- X-Ray Film I - The Alimentary System (Fleisch Archive, 1936, 16mm, silent, 11 min., 22fps, Germany)
This is the first of several of Prof. Robert Janker’s x-ray films. The

be true. The film presaged the sardonic tone of most of the maker's
later work (Eating Raoul), though he would mostly abandon The Secret
Cinema's experimental aspects in favor of linear narratives with
perverse touches.
